I contributed a recipe to this cookbook because I knew that a portion of the proceeds from this book will go to—

The National Center for Family Literacy

The National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) is a leading national nonprofit organization with an incredible mission: building a more literate and prosperous nation by helping parents and children learn together. For more than 20 years, NCFL has seen the power of family literacy in action. Since 1989, more than 1 million families have made education and economic progress as a result of NCFL’s work.

NCFL is credited with pioneering—and continuously improving—various family literacy models and approaches that improve the lives of our nation’s most at-risk children and families. The organization’s work is frequently cited by mainstream media and academic audiences for its innovation, attention to quality and groundbreaking results.

With the help of more than 150,000 teachers and thousands of other volunteers, NCFL has evolved its techniques to reach out to and maximize the effectiveness of local programs and organizations. In our work with these groups, we’ve seen how important it is to build community relationships that support and improve learning: from teacher to student, and, most importantly, from parent to child.

NCFL uses the strength of families and the flexibility of the family literacy approach to respond to the changing needs and demographics of underserved populations. Literacy initiatives and programs developed by NCFL yield great results on the local, state, and national levels.

Family by family, community by community, NCFL continues to touch lives and provide endless educational opportunities through family literacy.

To support readers and cooks everywhere, the author will donate a portion of the proceeds of the sale of this cookbook to the National Center for Family Literacy.

Taryn, thank you so much for posting about Family Stories, Family Recipes cookbook. This was a labor of love project and I'm so glad you were a contributor! Proceeds will go to the National Center for Family literacy to help support families with adults with low literacy skills, and to help get their children ready for school. I welcome your support!
